University and College Disability Offices

Most colleges and universities have student disability offices. If you have frequent CF exacerbations, challenges due to the amount of daily CF treatments you have to complete, limited energy, or any other issues related to living with CF that may impact on your studies you may want to register with your student disability office. The office can advocate on your behalf if you need to be hospitalized or miss classes due to an exacerbation, or if you need other supports due to CF health related issues

Examples of student disability office services are included in the links below. You can check your institution's website for your school's services.
